101 Ways to Secure the Plutocracy: #1

From Wikileaks, via Michael Geist.

Glad to see that New Zealand's putting up a fight on the patent issue, but sorry to see us so complacent on everything else - enforcement is our next most contentious category, and we're still behind almost everyone else on that. This will include the provisions leaked in earlier drafts (assuming they're still in the current version, which they may not be) for international corporate tribunals with the ability to penalise nations for domestic laws which adversely affect their profits. I hope that little dark pink square represents at least some reluctance on the part of the National government to sign our sovereignty away, but I wouldn't count on it.
